Drove to Burlington, VT on Thursday to meet up with my sisters. They drove up from points south (Ct, MA, NH) and met me at our motel. I haven't seen 3 of them since I was very sick in January and staying at my Mom's. What a difference a couple of months make!!!! From left to right: Eileen, Meg, me, Faith, Maureen. We walked downtown and shopped, bought gifts, tried on clothes. I was going to buy a dress for Adam's wedding but Faith brought up a couple of dresses for me to try on and I fell in love with one so I'm borrowing it! We also exchange gifts at Sister's Day and that was fun! After lunch and shopping we went back to the motel and had some wine, lots of talk, ordered a pizza and talked until I fell asleep. The next morning we had breakfast at the motel, packed up, and went to lunch. I know it seems like all we do is eat but hours passed while we talked, honest! After lunch we sat in Meg's car and talked some more. Finally I said goodbye and drove off leaving all of them to drive together. I know they solved all my problems on their way home! :) I should have snagged a sister to drive with.
A snapshot when I boarded the ferry crossing Lake Champlain into NY.
A windmill farm though I was taking the picture out my window driving and you can't really get the huge scope of these from my pics!
I'm off to chemo this morning starting my 5th round! YAY! I'm bringing my knitting!
I have been weaving for 24 years and selling for almost as long! I have slowed down my weaving since my cancer diagnosis and subsequent Whipple surgery but still weave on and off during the day when I have the energy! I currently sell my work on www.barefootweaver.etsy.com.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December, 2009. Had Whipple surgery in January 2010 and have had clear CT scans since! We are hopeful for a long and happy life!
As an update...I had a valve replacement in May 2016 and apologize for not answering comments or blogging! I am off to NYC February 15, 2017 for surgery on the 16th to remove a little spot of lung cancer. Hopefully recovery will be uneventful and I will be back at weaving soon!
